Over dinner the other night I got it into my head that I don't want to jump straight into working after college. I'm thinking that I'd like to travel around Europe, living sparely, hitching rides, settling down a little and working odd jobs when I need money. Meet lots of people, live life on my own terms, that kind of thing. I kind of realized that short of a mid-life crisis this might be the only time when I could really get away with this. I spent 4 months last fall studying in France, traveled around some and met some people who had done this...it seemed like an awesome way to spend a year. I have two passports and can live and work in most EU countries with no restriction, I speak fluent English, French and a little bit of tourist's German and Spanish...I've got family and friends in France, Switzerland, England, Italy and Spain, so it seems not that unrealistic right now, but I'm not sure. My real question is: has anyone done this, and is it really feasible to save up some money beforehand and find random jobs along the way as needed?
